The pole at 711 E. La Palma Ave. had been blown sideways by strong winds around 7 a.m., spokeswoman Margie Otto said.

The road was closed and traffic was rerouted as a precaution for about two hours while the pole was secured.

Otto said that power in the area was not affected. Metrolink train service was disrupted as workers tried to get access to the power pole.

Otto said trains were running again, but Metrolink Orange County tweeted that at least a half-dozen trains have been delayed, with some stuck for more than an hour.
